STUDIO CITY, Calif. – Pastor and author Erwin McManus, founder of Mosaic Church in Los Angeles, told hundreds of current and aspiring entertainment industry professionals that God's gift of imagination is license to create at the highest level during the keynote session at the Biola Media Conference Saturday.
"I am so convinced that part of the artistic process, part of the power of being a storyteller is to resonate with the voice that calls humanity back to the God who always calls us to Him, to silence all the voices that tell us what we lack," said McManus. "I don't want us to spend our lives worrying about all the stories that others are telling about us."
In his recently released book, The Artisan Soul, McManus pens "a manifesto for human creativity and the beginning of a new renaissance." During his talk at the conference and in his book, he "not only calls us to reclaim our creative essence, but reveals how we can craft our lives into a work of art." It is evident that he celebrates the spiritual process that can help people discover their true selves. McManus demonstrates that "we all carry within us the essence of an artist."
